  • The Government should get off the backs of Big Business

    Yeah, they should let Big Business (BB) alone. They know best
    how to get their wares to market and they are good corporate
    citizens. They would not knowingly bite the hand that feeds
    them.....right?







    FDA: Plant knowingly sold salmonella-laced food
    Sat Feb 7, 8:07 AM EST

    As far back as 2007, salmonella-laced products were shipped
    by a Georgia peanut company that knew the peanuts probably
    were tainted and sometimes after tests confirmed that
    contamination, inspection records show. Federal law forbids
    producing or shipping foods under conditions that could make it
    harmful to consumers' health.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

      Yeah, that might be a little extreme, but they need independent oversight that is for sure. And maybe the Feds are not the ones to do it. The FDA does not have that great a record when it comes to protecting the public.

      And company employee who it can be proved knowingly let contaminated product out the door should be taken to court and dealt with accordingly. Doesn't seem much different than product tampering to me.
